A?


  #3

what is the mechanism of action of theophyline?


  #4

as a phosphodiesterase inhibitior and also as a adenosine antagonist


  #5

yeah..looks like A


  #6

going backwards- amitryptyline reduces amine reuptake in depression./// phenylephrine is the alpha 1 agonist that decreases H.R.////tobutamide is a 1st generation diabetic med that blocks K+ channel , depolarizes and causes some insulin release/// thalidomides is teratogenic that most docs will stay far away from due to legal problems.{i think the word phocomelia is used} **Theophyline the answer comes under the category methlxanthine known for arrythmias and CNS stimulation


  #7

theophyline


  #8

theophylline.

problem with theophylline is it has a narrow therapeutic index


  #9

nod
